Iranian artillery shells PJAK militants in N Iraq
The heavy artillery shelling, which started in the early hours on Wednesday and lasted three hours, hit border villages in Binjuin in Sulaymanyah province in Iraq's Kurdish Autonomous Region, the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said.

There were no reports of casualties as the local population in the villages on the Iran-Iraq border had previously fled the area for fear of shelling.

Iranian army artillery frequently shells villages in the mountains of Sulaymanyah where it says PJAK militants are based.
